My two daughters absolutely love this school. Mrs. Turnbo, the former principal, has a wonderful way with the kids. She knows how to relate to them in a way that they understand and respect. There seems to be a really good balance between academics and extracurricular activities. The orchestra program there is phenomenal..way to go Mrs. Williams! Thank you Tejeda for a wonderful middle school experience.
The PTA program is not very bright here at Tejeda. Jan Johnson and her two obnoxios twins are rude and very ilmannerd.
This is a wonderful middle school - the administration, faculty are tremendous - very pro kids and very strong on academics. The PTA is excellent and has a great group for involvement. Discipline is handled professionally and fairly - the environment is for safety and learning mixed with alot of fun!
As far as my child is concerned, Tejeda is a great school. However, he is one of the very bright children who is also vocal and, surprisingly, not afraid (to a point) to speak up to and stand up to those who bully and ridicule him. I'm afraid that, at some point, he will be physically injured by those he stands up to. I understand that bullying is a growing problem in U.S. schools, and I think it is one that needs to be addressed on a more serious level. (I know that there is another middle school in the area that has serious problems with bullying and harrassment.) I understand that there are organizations that can be started at schools to help fight the problem of bullying, and I would like to see one started at Tejeda. It is a problem that the administrators at Tejeda try to address and minimize (there is a no-tolerance policy), but they can only handle what they are made aware of and there is a limit to how many eyes can be at one place at one time to see what's happening. It is a growing problem (epidemic?!)that needs to be addressed nationwide--not only by the schools but by the parents of those who are bullied, as well as those who have a bully for a child.
